Ph.D. student Ms. Sawsan Shukri, undergraduate research assistant Mr. Safin H. Bayes, Ph.D. student Mr. Lance Alpuerto, and postdoctoral researcher Dr. Morcos Metry presented their paper entitled, “Non-Planar Photovoltaic Testbed Based on in-situ Parameter Extraction for PV Simulation & Emulation” at the 2nd International Conference on Photovoltaic Science and Technology. The workshop, which was held virtually 30 November through 2 December 2020, was originally scheduled to be in-person in Ankara, TURKEY.

The paper aims to present an experimental testbed for non-planar PV structures that can be used to collect the in-situ experimental data to examine various PV interconnections and use the data to characterize and emulate operation for research and development.
